Overview

Catherine has been part of the diabetes research team, led by Prof Andrew Hattersley since 2010, working on clinical research projects in diabetes, including genetics of diabetes and most recently stratification of Type 2.

She is currently manages the TriMaster clinical trial, a randomised double-blind three-way crossover trial of third-line diabetes therapies which aims to improve diabetes care by identifying groups of patients who may respond better to certain diabetes treatments. She is also involved in the NIHR Global Health project working to improve diabetes diagnosis and treatment in sub-Saharan Africa in collaboration with partners in Uganda and Cameroon. 

Alongside these role she is a part-time PGR student looking at stratified medicine and treatment hetergeneity in Type 2 Diabetes. 

Catherine is based in the NIHR Exeter Clinical Research Facility and UEMS Medical School.  Previous studies include the MASTERMIND and RetroMASTER clinical studies, work with the Stroke Research Network for the INTERSTROKE study and the EU IMI-DIRECT and FP7-CEED3 projects.
